Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, the head of the Government of National Unity, reiterated that no foreign power or mercenaries would be allowed to remain in Libya and vowed to make the elections a reality.

These remarks were made today during a statement by the Prime Minister at Libya’s Mitiga International Airport after he returned from New York to attend the Security Council meeting on Libya.

“It is an honour to represent my country in the Security Council, where our country has not had an impressive presence for a long time,” Dbeibah said, adding that “we have confirmed during our meetings with the Security Council that we are able to represent ourselves without any agency or guardianship.”

Dbeibah made it plain during his participation in the Security Council that the future of Libya would not allow for war, bloodshed, or the presence of foreign powers or mercenaries.

In his statement, the Head of Government committed to working to make the elections a reality and to assist Libya’s progress, emphasizing that he would not let anything stand in the way of fulfilling the Libyan people’s will.

He continued, “We will keep working to bring our sovereign and non-sovereign institutions together. We shall invest our riches in ways that will benefit our current generation while also ensuring the future of future generations.

“Nothing is missing to make this a reality for Libya,” he said, “and because the youth group represents the largest number of people in Libya, we will invest and believe in our future.”

“We call for the imposition of sanctions against those who obstruct the process of state unification, the establishment of institutions, and the punishment of instigators of violence, war, and hatred at home and abroad because we are tired of these side battles that consume us and obstruct our ambition to build and create the future,” he said.

The Prime Minister continued by saying: “We have received a positive response and support from the international community, and we will achieve our objectives… Demolition, destruction, and conflict are extremely easy, but building, reconciliation, and reunification are tough roads to go, and if God wishes, let us choose the difficult way in building this country… Libya belongs to all Libyans. Libya is the only one.
